MMP Blogger Award 2019 How Winners Are Chosen The MMP Blogger Awards tracks each blog’s specific engagement and readership and compares that to the other blogs in the same category to ascertain a winner. The awards aim to recognise and honour best and upcoming bloggers on the continent in the fairest way possible by measuring their actual influence and traffic, and also keeping the blogging passion alive. The awards are not a popularity contest– influencers will not win this by asking their readers, friends and followers to vote for their respective platforms. Our purpose is to avoid bloggers involving their readers and followers in the voting process, and to keep the judging process as fair as possible. The best way to do this is by minimising the human element. We simply want influencers to keep doing what they do best – blogging, tweeting, Facebooking, Instagramming, and YouTubing. Please note: site statistics and information will at no point be shared or open to the public or sponsors. The analytics platform offers a full SSL certificate protecting all the data, which is fully encrypted. We use this tool to measure one blog against another.

Whether your blog is about travel, fashion, or photography – all of which are categories you can register under the MMP Blogger Awards – your blog is telling a story. With so much noise on the internet, it is important to be representing your ideas in a complete, succinct way. Experiences Sharing experiences online is nothing new and this is because experiences leave lasting impressions. Using the idea of storytelling for your content gives you the opportunity to frame your experiences in a way that is more engaging. Framing your experiences as a story takes your content one step further. Your readers will walk away with an intellectual and emotional stirring about your content, which encourages conversation and engagement. Pro Tip: One of the easiest ways to add storytelling to your blogging is to summarize the history of the topics you cover. Words to Action Once you have built up and engaged and informed audience, it is much easier to action your content. You can use your blog to move people towards a specific action of your choosing. Whether you choose to petition for people to donate to charity, start an offline reading club or buy your products. Using storytelling on your content, puts you in a unique position to move peoples hearts, minds and even wallets. With all the noise on the internet, it is most important right now to use your online platforms to stand out. Using genuine storytelling on your blog will get your readers to listen and engage, differently and deeper too. Otherwise, what’s your story?
